Episode details

Brendan Heard of Aureus Press returns and we conclude our debate, begun in the previous episode, on the redeemable and irredeemable aspects of modern art and abstract expressionism. We both agree it's ugly, but I argue it was an inevitable progression from the decline of painting, while he thinks it's responsible for it.
Brendan will probably come back, because he's working on another book, and it's fascinating.

*Note: I said Wyeth’s painting “Christinas World” was at the MET, but its at MoMa. I also couldn’t think of the name.
